Dr Elizabeth Hall Wiki – Dr Elizabeth Hall Biography
Dr Elizabeth Hall, an academic at the center of a 26-year feud with her neighbor, has avoided jail after bombarding a fellow pensioner with 53 emails and letters.
She made ‘malicious’ accusations against resident Mrs. Christine Penny – even posting them to a communal notice board – during a ‘campaign’ at Melville Hall, Edgbaston, Birmingham Crown Court heard.
She is 75 years old.
The row, stretching over decades, stemmed from the victim supposedly playing Frank Sinatra too loudly.
The 73-year-old victim described the feud as a ‘living nightmare’ – with claims she’s now on anti-depressants, and her childhood stutter has returned.
Hall who used a wheelchair, who is a doctor of science, was found guilty in her absence of harassment and breaching a restraining order not to contact the former hotel owner.

Hall was convicted of breaching a restraining order between March 2019 and December 2020 and harassment between April 2020 and May.
A victim impact statement from Mrs. Penny was read to the court and said: “Ms. Penny states that she continues to suffer from the behavior of her neighbor Dr. Hall.
“There are too many arrests and breaches of bail even to recall; she continues to accuse her and her family.
Despite the earlier convictions at Birmingham Magistrates Court, she continued to protest her innocence, saying she had been ‘framed’ – even suggesting police ought to carry out an ‘investigation’ into the case.
But Judge Roderick Henderson, sentencing, instead accused her of being ‘in complete denial,’ and Hall was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment, suspended for 21 months.
Rachel Pennington, prosecuting, told the court: “There has been some history of the parties not getting on which led to the Magistrates’ Court.
“Following receipt of the letters, she received emails. The correspondence was sent in breach of the restraining order.”
Mrs. Penny previously told how Hall bombarded her with emails, making several false accusations and even targeted her plants as the feud ‘came to a crescendo’ in 2016.
Hall will likely be sent to prison to serve the year-long term, the court heard, if she commits another offense.
The feud isn’t the first time it has sparked controversy as her firm, Elizabeth Hall Associates, focused on a 2003 BBC Radio 4 reveal on ghostwriting.
Their company was exposed as one of the minor ethical companies producing custom-written essays for students for up to £ 200 each.
